My youngest daughter has spent 5 days in hospital this week due to a severe chest infection and possible asthma. During this time I was not sleeping due to her oxygen sats dropping and her requiring oxygen and to be nebulised every 4 hours. Also I was uncomfortable most of the time. Many of you can appreciate how this would have affected my fibromyalgia; unfortunately the staff did not. I was asked if I had taken anything due to me being in pain and walking funny. Then I overslept (from 4am) the nurse woke me at 8am, when I explained I have fibromyalgia and it causes terrible fatigue especially combined with the lack of sleep. She just shot me a look like "yeah right whatever" and walked off. I felt like a shitty mom because of that.
Isn't it frustrating?! Then I got moaned at for using the lift (elevator), when I said I have a disability she literally laughed at me! She said I'm just lazy!
I've seen these hidden disability cards you can register for in the UK - I'm going to get one and literally slap it round the next person to question me!
Needed to vent 😤😡😠
